Every year, people participate in the famous Green Card lottery, which is usually processed from October to November and the results of the draw can be seen in May of the next year.
The status of your application can be viewed at the website: https://dvprogram.state.gov/ by specifying the individual application number and your personal data. You should have saved the individual application number when you filled out the application. If you receive a winning letter in the mail, be wary because most likely it came from scammers. The U.S. Department of Homeland Affairs never sends letters to the winners of the Green Card lottery.

So unfortunately, you will not be able to complete the process.
